Defense for Venezuelan Orense Promises to go On Offense vs 4 Cooperators, Maduro Cited

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURT, Nov 27 – Venezuelan indicted narco-trafficker Carlos Orense Azocar was presented in Magistrates Court in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on June 23, 2023 and Inner City Press was (the only media) there. 

 Orense had just been extradited in from Italy and the indictment against him unsealed.

The case was wheeled out and assigned to District Judge Vernon S. Broderick.

  On November 14, Inner City Press covered the final pre-trial conference before Judge Broderick. Thread.

On November 27, Inner City Press went for openings 9:15 am, and later. Thread:

Now here at US v Orense- his daughter us here, counsel asks if she can hug him, hasn't seen since his arrest in Italy.

Ruling: No physical contact. Orense is crying as Marshals stand by his side. Inner City Press is here, in empty gallery.

Judge: Mr Azocar, Juror 10 is sick. Juror 11's mother is hospitalized. I will ask her questions...

Counsel for El Pollo just came into the courtroom

OK: in opening, defense lawyer tells jury all 4 cooperating witnesses are just drug traffickers who want to stay in the USA, one of whom tried to kill Orense.

Defense: The US tells you Orense knows Venezuela officials including Nicolas Maduro. But he also knows singer Vicente Fernandez - that doesn't mean Orense in a singer.

 The defense promised to "go on offense" against the government's case, citing AUSA Dick Gregorie, several times...

Inner City Press will continue to cover the trial.

The case is US v. Azocar, 21-cr-379 (Broderick)
